In today's world, the energy landscape is undergoing a transformation unlike any we've seen before. As the global community grapples with the imperative to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change, the power and renewables sector stands at the forefront of this monumental shift.


It's a sector pulsating with innovation, sustainability, and boundless opportunities. At TRS Staffing, we’re here to be the beacon guiding you to an electrifying career in this dynamic field, from the latest renewable hotspots and market trends to the most exciting jobs out there. 


Read on to explore what this new energy landscape has to offer.


What is renewable energy?

Renewable energy, often referred to as clean or green energy, is energy that is generated from sources that are naturally replenished and sustainable over the long term. 


Renewable energy sources like wind, solar, and hydroelectric power have minimal to no negative impact on the environment and contribute significantly to reducing carbon emissions and combating climate change.


They are the driving force behind a cleaner, more sustainable future. As nations strive to meet ambitious renewable energy targets – reducing emissions by 45% by 2030 and reaching net zero by 2050 – the demand for talented professionals in this sector has skyrocketed.


The future of renewable energy

In an era of heightened climate change concerns, the role of renewable energy has never been more pivotal. Here's a glimpse of what lies ahead:


Domestic production: 

Expect increased self-sufficiency as governments take a strategic outlook. This will be supported by stronger business cases and policies that enable the upward trend of renewable expansion. More households are also expected to generate their own green energy, enhancing resilience and sustainability.


The industry is swiftly pivoting toward domestic production models worldwide. Renewable energy is expected to provide 42% of the United States’ electricity by 2050, compared to 20% today. 


Nations such as the UK are leading the charge on renewable energy, and countries in the SADC region such as Botswana and South Africa, are becoming key players in the shift towards energy efficiency, with renewables accounting for 23.5% of their generation.


At TRS Staffing, our global teams are based in prime locations just like these and more, with access to a network of experts to support the growing demand for talent in the renewable energy sector.


The storage imperative: 

Energy storage solutions are stepping into the spotlight, as experts predict the global energy storage market will experience 23% CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate).


Research and development will be vital to support innovation. Some of the exciting storage solutions that may help the planet include:

  • Converting energy into hydrogen, storing then reverting to electricity when needed.
  • Synthetic fuels which are easy to store and require little investment in infrastructure.
  • Advanced battery technologies which are becoming indispensable for grid stability, ensuring uninterrupted power supply in an era marked by intermittent renewable sources. Reports show that battery energy storage system capacity is expected to quintuple between now and 2030. 

Rapid capacity expansion: 

Brace for a substantial uptick in renewable energy production capacity. This isn't a mere trend; it's a strategic shift, aligning with global ambitions for a more sustainable and carbon-neutral energy landscape.


A new report by the International Energy Agency (IEA) shows that solar PV and wind are set to lead the largest annual increase, ever, in new renewable capacity ever.


The future of energy is undergoing a profound transformation, one that champions sustainability, resilience, and long-term environmental stewardship. Stay engaged with these developments, as they chart a course toward a cleaner, greener future.
